Saheb Mohapatra Poems
Comments about Saheb Mohapatra
Wake up, wake up, o, grandpa, o dear,
Wake and feel those you see;
Don’t you know how hard it is to peer
A living mass lying dead before me.
No, no, not let anyone to come
To mince us apart and too our ways;
O please, o dear, return home
And don’t freeze these soundless days.
Wake up, wake up, o, grandpa, o dear
And take me to the land you wish,
O my eyes can hold no more these tears,
Nor part from you with a kiss.
You are an angel of lands and lands,
Or will be soon; or might,
Just place your head upon my hands
And you will be ...
Diwali For The Dead
Never shall my lamps stop to glow,
Even if my breaths start to slow,
Even if shall die human's humaneness
Or his nobility which perhaps is the Almighty's bless.
God knows, not know the men,
Even if I am dead, shall glow my lamps
Beside my ever-slept bones,
Being a navigator with the heaven's maps.
